I've got to admit, Allen is already becoming part of the naval archeology scene.

There are some accounts about the condition of Juneau's wreck? I suppose it would be in very bad shape (even broken in multiple parts, not just two) givent the battle damage suffered and the catastrophic explosion that sent her to the bottom after being torpedoed by I-26

From the brief video on their Facebook page, she looks like a mess.

4.2k fall isn't going to aid that, light cruiser, probably structurally shattered, looked like the bow? had caved in on itself

From the comments I've seen, she's in three pieces.

Eagerly awaiting the photographic evidence that will finally put to bed the big argument on the Model Warships forum over what color she was painted as lost. ;)

RV Petrel's Facebook page states that she is in three pieces; the bow and stern near to each other and about 800 yards away from the main portion of the wreck...which still has its camouflage pattern intact. ;)
